The version on Fallout from the Phil Zone is phenomenal! Do we know definitively which performance this is from?

Also try Merramec College...

The ultra jammed out performance from the Red Vest might be the all time best ever, if it wasnt for the intolerable patch...

No, I dont think thats right.

9/20/70 is another gem, but that is not it either...

I think the Festival Express version with Pigpen blowing the harp (and everyone else in their purple shirts) is the best version ever. Too bad we can't have it here.

Loving and living the experience of following the Grateful Dead when I did, it was fantastic to be there when they broke something out that had been put away for a long time. Cryptical, To Lay Me Down and Crazy Fingers are the first that come to mind for me in my journey. As to your inquiry - and not necessarily an endorsement for a best version - but being there made it great for me:
